Questions & Answers

Q:I'm painting a metal outdoor deck railing. I have no idea what type of paint is currently on it. Will this paint work?
by|Apr 11, 2024
1 Answer
Answer This Question

A:  Hello, thank you for your question. Our Premium Plus Exterior Paint can be used directly over water-based paint. For oil-based coatings, we recommend priming first. As you're not sure if the current paint is water-based or oil-based, it will be best to use a separate primer. Have a great day! -Giovanna

      Q:Do I need an oil based primer on an aluminum garage door

      Answer This Question

      A:  Hi Bobby, thank you for your question. You do not need to use an oil-based primer for aluminum surfaces, and you can use a water-based product if you prefer. In that case, we recommend using our Multi-Surface Primer (No .436) for the best adhesion. Have a great day! -Lina

          The paint was thick and easy coverage. So much better than the PG brand I use to buy at Home Depot. That stuff was horrible.

          A very good paint. Covers well (I would suggest 2 coats) and the color is vibrant and consistent. I would recommend it without reservation.

          Paint Peeled
          Bought paint to do porch ceiling. Decided to use on chair arm first since color was the same. Three weeks later the paint peeled off the arm. You can start a peel easily with your finger nail and strip it off. No hardness to the paint after 3 weeks. The arm was clean and originally painted with semigloss about 25 years ago. Glad I didn't use this to do my house trim or garage door. At $50 per gallon I should have gotten a superior product but got junk instead.
          Response from BehrJul 6, 2023
          Hi there, thank you for your review. I'm so sorry to hear that your paint did not dry to the hardness you expected. Our Premium Plus Paint cures to its full hardness in about 4 weeks. Please note that humid temperatures can slow down the drying process. In the meantime, we recommend being gentle on the coating to avoid any abrasions or touch-ups. Once cured, the paint will provide the proper durability and protection. To fix the affected spot, I recommend sanding to remove the loose coating. Then make sure the area is clean and dry before touching that up. If needed, recoat the chair arm for uniformity. Customer satisfaction is important to us, and we appreciate your feedback. Please reach out to us directly if you need further assistance; our Customer Care team is happy to help! -Lina Behr
